NCTA Celebration- First Full Day

Today we went on a five mile hike on the North Country Trail. It was pretty hilly!

We started the day by having a little breakfast in the bare-bones trailer.

Some wildflowers starting to open. Should be more tomorrow. The Dutchman's breeches are looking good.

We found some big false morels (not sure exactly what species)

And the evening program was the Park Service Awards (for cumulative volunteer hours), followed by a presentation about Sleeping Bear Dunes.
